TIWI : Art & Artists

Author(s): Judith Ryan


Tiwi visual and performative cultural practices have existed for many millennia, but it was only during the twentieth century that a wider public became aware of the magnificence of Tiwi painting and sculpture. This compelling publication celebrates this unique art of the Tiwi people of Melville and Bathurst Islands – the Tiwi Islands of the Northern Territory – and explores the dynamic trajectory of it across time and across media. Edited by Judith Ryan AM, Senior Curator, Indigenous Art at the NGV, this exhibition publication is a scholarly, in-depth study of Tiwi art and culture and of many of its major artists.
